"Hold It Up" as written by and Stephen Bryce Avary....
Sayin', I'm lookin' now at pictures of us
I remember thinkin', oh, this will never be lost
Oh, the songs, it spoke for me when I couldn't speak
Shame the band's broke up, I just hope we'll remember these

Hold it up, hold it tight, moments live or moments die
Hold it up, hold it strong, stay right here where you belong
Hold it up, hold it tight, the only plans of mine
Might sound to you cliche but I just plan to live the rest of my life

Saying I'm one, these pictures of us
I don't wanna say goodnight to records I love
I was thinkin' of not growin' old, forgettin' and forgot
I don't wanna forget this and I don't want to be forgot

Hold it up, hold it tight, moments live or moments die
Hold it up, hold it strong, stay right here where you belong
Hold it up, hold it tight, the only plans of mine
Might sound to you cliche but I just plan to live the rest of my life

Hold it up, hold it tight, moments live or moments die
Hold it up, hold it strong, stay right here where you belong
Hold it up, hold it tight, the only plans of mine
Might sound to you cliche but I just plan to live the rest of my life

    General CommentThis song, at least to me, seems to be about a relationship and how it is ending, but Bryce wants to still be in it.

    "S-S-Saying, I'm looking now
    At pictures of us
    I remember thinking, oh, oh, oh
    This will never be lost"

    The song starts with recollections of feelings during the relationship. He used to think that it would be impossible for them ever to break up.

    "Oh, the songs that spoke for me
    When I couldn't speak
    Shame the bands broke up
    I just hope we'll remember these"

    Songs began to have much more meaning to him during the relationship. When you hear a love song while in love, you relate to it much better. Now, though, these songs are disappearing/having less meaning. He just wants to remember the songs they were when he was in that relationship.

    "Hold it up
    Hold it tight
    Moments live or moments die
    Hold it up
    Hold it strong
    Stay right here where you belong
    Hold it up
    Hold it tight
    The only plans of mine
    Might sound to you cliché
    But, I just plan to live the rest of my life"

    Hold it up in this sense means wait, and don't go. He continues with "stay right here where you belong." He wants to be able to live to life's fullest, and feels as if the only way for him to do that is to be with whoever it is in the song.

    "S-S-Saying I want to know
    These pictures of us
    I don't want to say goodnight
    To records I love"

    This ties back in with the first verse. He wants to still be in love with all the records that they shared. He feels so intertwined with the person that he would be losing a part of himself if she were to leave.

    "I was thinking about growing old
    Forgetting and forgot
    I don't want to forget this
    And I don't want to be forgot"

    He wanted to grow old with this person, but now she's leaving. He knows that if she leaves, they will both forget the relationship when they get older, but he doesn't want that to happen.

    That's pretty much it. He's so a part of the other person, and she's so a part of him, that when she goes he won't be whole anymore.

    General Commenti have a feeling that it;s about remembering
    the music, and the concerts from when you were
    young, and maybe to bryce it's also about
    remembering the fans, and all the people he met.
    i dont know why i think that. and i'm probably wrong.
    but whatever.

    i still love this song, and it's probably
    my favorite on the CD.

    :]
